Our FCBEscola coaches are supervised by our Technical Directors who are directly employed by FC Barcelona and assure the training is done according to the strict FCB guidelines.
WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR TO THE HOLIDAY CAMP?
We recommend that children wear casual clothing; T-shirts, shorts, or sports clothing. As children are actively playing in different sports and activities it is best that they wear closed-in shoes, trainers are the most preferred. This also lessens the likelihood of injuries.
We also advise parents to clearly label their child’s property this includes bags, clothing, shoes, lunch box containers, water bottles, towels, swimwear etc…
MY CHILD IS VERY SHY. WILL HE/SHE BE OK?
StryxGulf understand the importance of helping children socialize, meeting new friends and working within a team. StryxGulf trainers/coaches will make sure that each child will feel welcome and happy to engage with all sports and activities.
WILL FRIENDS BE GROUPED TOGETHER?
For ASA children are grouped and divided by age group and level of ability.
If you book your child and his/her friends onto a class or holiday camp at the same time, the chances are they will end up in the same group provided they are the same age. The holiday camp experience is all about making new friends and getting to know other children and trying new experiences.
WHAT KIND OF ACTIVITIES WILL MY CHILD BE DOING AT THE HOLIDAY CAMP?
We have a variety of different activities and sports that your child can participate in during the holiday camp. The activities depend on the amount of signups we have at each camp.
